4 Quick & Easy Fall Treats

September 19, 2023


Lauren Farver

Disclosure: Thank you to Walmart and Collective Voice for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased, and loved by yours truly.

If you’re looking for quick and easy fall treats that kids and adults are sure to love, you’ve come to the right place! Lauren here, mama of 2 young boys and lover of all things fall! Specifically, fall flavors! Give me pumpkins and apples for days this time of year! Today I’m sharing four fall treats that will come together quickly [any other moms feel me on the limited time thing?!] and are sooo delicious! Plus, I like to think that the apples in them make them healthy 😉

I got the *CUTEST* serving ware from Walmart for these treats and I could not be more excited about them! They’re classic enough pieces with a tiny bit of modern that I know I’ll be using them again and again for hosting throughout all the seasons [like this board for charcuteries, this fun black and white bowl, and this wooden cake stand!]! And with the convenience of Walmart’s buy online pickup in store feature, I was able to have all of the food and serving ware loaded into my car within a few hours! Anytime I can get what I need without getting myself and the kids out of the car is a win in my book!

A Quick Front Porch Update

While I was already getting some things from Walmart…

Welcome Rug // Black & White Rug // Small Black Lantern // Medium Black Lantern // Black Metal Planter

Well, I may or may not have scooped up some fall porch decor while I was at it with my Walmart order – oops! But I couldn’t resist the black lanterns, cute layering rug, and planters!

Okay okay, let’s get to it- the recipes!
